Editors' review

This step-by-step file duplicate finder will help you quickly locate and delete redundant files; however, we recommend that novices proceed with caution when it comes to deleting any found duplicate files.

Easy Duplicate Finder uses a three-step process to quickly and easily locate and remove duplicate files from your system. Simply add the folders you wish to scan and define the file mask (all files, JPEG, MP3) from the drop-down menu. Click the Start button in Step 2 and the program very quickly displays any found duplicates. While the program is scanning your system, you can actively watch the numbers of files scanned, original files to duplicates, and the space used by said files. Using the export button, we were able to easily export the program's findings. Finally, we had to decide what to do with the files. We had the option of deselecting all files, renaming them, moving them to a folder, and deleting selected files. We went through each option, and all worked perfectly. The Settings menu gives you two file-comparison options (CRC32 and byte-by-byte) and help is available through the publisher's Web site.

The program does add extra desktop icons without asking and we had to manually remove some items after the program was uninstalled. Still, Easy Duplicate Finder proved to be a very thorough and reliable file-management tool, but because of the risk of accidentally deleting important files, we only recommend this program for more-experienced users.

    "Fast, easy to use and reliable"

    September 15, 2014   |   By MightyShah

    Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.6.0.352

    Pros

    This program is very fast as it took very little time scanning my 1TB drive. It also did a very good job and deleted many duplicates

    Cons

    No cons. The trial is a bit too limited (only 10 deletions), but it's not too bad.

    Summary

    If anyone is looking for a duplicate finder that is fast and easy to use, I recommend this one.

    "'Bait and Switch' to pay to use"

    August 23, 2014   |   By NewOrderrr

    Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.6.0.352

    Pros

    Found several duplicate files after a 3 hours search

    Cons

    After a three hour search done across 3 external hard drives, when I went to click on one of the files if listed as a duplicate, I got a pop-up message that read that I exceeded the number of uses I had available for the product, and should buy the 'pro' version. I only clicked on ONE file and I got this message. When I uninstalled it, I got a browser pop up offering that I should buy it at a discounted $30 price.

    Summary

    It isn't even 'trial-ware', since I could not perform even ONE action after the file scan without being prompted to purchase the final version.

    If there was a restriction, such as only allowing 10 actions per day, then maybe I would try to use it, but no one should consider this anything but 'bait and switch' type of product.

    "Intuitive and fast duplicate finder"

    August 15, 2014   |   By RH1020

    Pros

    1. Intuitive interface
    2. Fast and accurate scanning
    3. Lots of file management options
    4. iTunes integration

    Cons

    None at all

    Summary

    I love Easy Duplicate Finder because it's true to its name (very easy to use) and offers advanced duplicate finding options at the same time. I mostly use it to manage duplicate songs and I appreciate the fact that it can sync with iTunes and Windows Media. I also like how the Assistant tool lets me to quickly set default options for managing my duplicates.

    I had log-in problems and used my other account (the one I use for Mac software) to post the review. Now it appears that the same review is posted under two accounts because of the website glitch. Sorry about that and please don't consider the reviews spam. I really use EDF and I enjoy it a lot.

    "Love the new version"

    August 12, 2014   |   By BlancheA

    Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.6.0.352

    Pros

    The new version looks great and is sooo easy to use! I love the new way to quickly delete duplicates and I love the new three-step process.

    Cons

    No cons at all

    Summary

    I've been an EDF user for a while and I've always liked how functional the app was. The new interface made this functional app very pleasant and easy to use, plus it looks great. The functionality has been improved too, especially the Wizard. In short, I highly recommend this app.

    P.S. Don't pay attention to spam reviews that defame this program. Check the reviewer and you'll see that it's an account created by Webminds' competitors to defame them.
